In Overcoming the Achievement Gap Trap: Liberating Mindsets to Effect Change, author Anthony Muhammad examines the prevailing mindset that perpetuates unequal learning outcomes for some students. He studies how impartiality is missing from struggling students' school experiences, especially for poor and minority students. He draws attention to the need for learning equality and equity to be professional and societal priorities to ensure that factors such as economic standing and race don't play a role in determining students' achievement. Schools have grown too accustomed to the academic achievement gap. Reducing inequality in education means adopting a new, liberating mindset that frees educators and students from negative academic performance expectations.
